LANCASTER - Garrard County will delay selling the county farm until the property on Perry Rogers Road can be inspected and surveyed.
Magistrate Joe Leavell said Tuesday that the county should wait until magistrates make an on-site inspection of the property before any further discussions take place.
Leavell doesn't expect the farm to sell this year. "It's too late to get it sold this winter," he said. "It needs to get cleaned up."
The Fiscal Court agreed to hire Estes Engineering and Surveying of Danville to survey the property. Estes will charge $80 an hour for field work and $50 an hour for office research not to exceed $5,750.
